Kultura – Nyet!
Last night I should have been watching a new - and supposedly sexy - production of one of my favourite plays, written by one of my favourite dramatists. Instead I swapped Three Sisters at the National for three-and-a-half Stellas in the beer garden. In this weather, my dears, three hours of Chekhov is no laughing matter.
There are times when culture just won't cut it. There are times when Moscow can bloody well wait.
